How to get more Apex Legends crafting materials using Lifeline

Lifeline mains can actually share the love when it comes to unearthing additional crafting materials by simply letting a teammate open her extended supply bins first.

When the addition of crafting was teased prior to the start of Season 6, some Apex Legends players worried that the game would follow in the footsteps of Fortnite. 

That, of course, hasn’t been the case – you won’t drop into World’s Edge or Kings Canyon and see someone cranking out 1×1 towers. Instead, the crafting is just an additional way to score loot. 

You open up supply bins and drain resources from the tanks that surround Replicators before using the big orange machines to get a new weapon, a hop-up, or even a new piece of armor. Though, if you’re playing as Lifeline, you have a great chance to share the love and help your team rack up even more crafting materials.

According to Redditor ToxicBooster, when it comes to Lifeline’s extended supply bins, the key thing to do is to let one of your teammates open the main compartment first. 

This will give them the usual five crafting materials, but then Lifeline still has the chance to open the secondary compartment. When she does, she will also receive five crafting materials. 

This means that instead of just getting five from either Lifeline or a teammate opening the extended supply bin, there are actually ten to go around provided that you open them in the right order.

Now, you can’t exactly drop crafting materials from your inventory and give them to a teammate, but it always helps to have a decent amount going spare.

By having a handful fo spare points, you can simply craft something your teammate needs and then later in the game, they can return the favor. It’s a win-win for all, as long as you remember to not just rush in and open the supply bins in a blind panic.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
